Many students are ENCOURAGED to remain in contact

Over 125 interested and excited guests joined
SupportAbility and its Board Members at the Santa Ana
Country Club for a stunning and inspirational reception.
Twelve past Award Recipients returned and openly,
and so eloquently, spoke about their personal hardships
and told of their future plans and goals, to the guests
and contributors of SupportAbility.
The final speaker, a recipient from 2011, has severe
physical disabilities, yet doesn't allow that to hinder him
in the least. He shared how living without hands, and using
his prosthetic legs, affect him in his daily life. He told of his
college plans, which
include majoring in vocal music-singing. He concluded the
evening by rendering a beautiful Latin hymn, which brought
everyone to tears...
"Our Kids" are amizing, talented and
full of Courage
At last year's tournament, SA raised over $7,100.
Guests heard recipients and other inspirational
success stories at our post-tournament reception.
One of SupportAbility's faithful recipients said,
"I never knew I was
courageous. I was just trying to get
well..." A feeling often felt by Julie and, no
doubt, other recipients who were just getting
through life. This noted recipient has stayed in
contact with Julie and attended our fundraisers since
2004, when she received a Courage Award.
In May of 2012, 35
deserving students were awarded
